by Ruth

Victor opened a huge gift from Nikki after dinner in paradise. She then moved the conversation on to the topic of his new house guest. He answered her questions and she found out that he felt that he had been successful at urging Tricia to take her medication again.

At the penthouse, Tricia was thinking about how she had offered to cook for Victor and wanted to do it that evening. She went to Gina's with her guard to get ideas and recipes. She cooked up a storm and, while she set the table just right, she thought back about Victor's hand on her shoulder back at the hospital.

Raul paid Rianna a visit at the boutique to find her holding J.T.'s wrist while he wore a bracelet that she had given him long ago. Raul refused to stay around and J.T. tried to patch things up and get her to admit that she believed that he always cared about her. She agreed that she knew what he was saying, but soon left for the coffeehouse to find Raul.

Raul was there. He had taken his insulin shot soon after he arrived while visions of Rianna and J.T. together rushed through his brain. Mac and Billy were trying to convince him to visit colleges with them and/or go to a movie with them and invite Rianna. He refused to go for it, then he took his insulin shot again, thinking that he had forgotten it earlier. Mac and Billy left then Rianna showed up. He let her sit down, they said a few words, then J.T. arrived, ready to make trouble. He started badmouthing Raul, Raul started a fight, Cody broke it up, then kicked J.T. out of the restaurant. Rianna could tell that there was something wrong with Raul -- he was acting weak and dizzy -- she screamed for some orange juice or soda while he pushed her away.

Katherine paid Paul a visit at his office. She was planning a fundraising event and wanted Paul's company to provide security. He agreed, then she told him that she was worried about him. She suggested that she spend some time with Lauren, who he was surprised to find out was still in town. . .

At Gina's, Lauren was joined at her table by Michael Baldwin. He had several questions for her about her "relationship" with Isabella Brana. She answered his questions with her own questions and neither one was getting anywhere. Soon, Paul Williams approached the table and Michael made a swift exit. Paul sat down and he told Lauren not to ever talk to Michael, he could not be trusted.

Ryan arrived at the apartment to find Victoria ready to talk about wedding plans. She asked him to reserve the entire Colonnade Room for the reception, so he did. Then she invited the reverend from All Saints Church to come over and talk about marrying them. November 9 was the date (the day after Ryan's divorce would be final) and it had been booked at the church for over a year. She sent him off in a hurry, told Ryan how disappointed she was, then started making another phone call on her mission to be married in just a few weeks. . .

Nikki and Victor finished up their conversation about Tricia, moving on to more important things. She commented on how it was a beautiful evening for a swim, stood up, dropped her dress to the floor, and jumped in! She called out to him to join her in the water while he sat, amazed and amused at her behavior.

Nikki's no longer worried though. What harm could come of it she wonders.

She was hoping to surprise and he thanks her for the effort. They instead skip to dessert which they enjoy. She asks about his evening at the Ranch and he mentions that he went swimming. She talks about the good ol' days with Ryan and how she has no one but herself to blame for messing it up. She thanks him for his kindness to her in her hard times. He tells her he wants her to get well. She's sure that Fate brought them together. She was sure he would never be supportive of her and he wonders why then did she want to move in. She evades the question chalking it up to just instinctual. She says it's hard to remember details that far back. Is there a reason he's asking, she wonders.

Before going she places her hand on his shoulder and thanks him.
